Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is making noise again. This time it was on MSNBC’s “All In” with Chris Hayes. She is officially calling on Americans across the nation to rise up and protest against President Trump and proclaim to him that his declaration of a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border is “fake.”
Waters stated, “I really expect we’re going to have a growing number of Republicans that are going to join with us in this disapproval. Yes, they’re concerned if a Democratic president gets elected then they can use emergency powers to do a lot of the things they don’t like. As you know, they don’t believe in climate change. They don’t want us to talk about Medicare for all or any of those subjects they think we’ll spend too much government money, even though they’ve created the largest debt we’ve seen in government for many many years.” I wouldn’t count on that.
She then went on: “I’ve been talking about impeachment for a long time. I’m absolutely stunned and amazed that the American people have taken so much off of this president. This president has lied, I think it’s been documented, 8,000 times in the last two years. This president has committed obstruction of justice right before our very eyes. And if we could ever get Manafort to tell the truth, then we will find they conspired to get Trump elected so sanctions could be lifted off of Russia. President Obama created sanctions, placed them on Russia, because of their invasion, basically in Crimea, and they can’t drill into the Arctic, do some of these things they want to do. They don’t have the equipment. Our allies are working with us to honor the sanctions, and that’s what this is all about. The Americans have taken too much off of this president. He is dishonorable. He does not deserve to be President of the United States. As a matter of fact, he loves Putin, dictators, loves Kim Jong-un, talking about they’re in love now.”
Waters added, “And so it’s time for everybody to stand up. All hands on deck to refuse this president these fake emergency powers that he would like the have. And so I’m urging everybody get together — rally in every community across this country all this weekend, send a message to Washington, D.C., ‘No, Mr. President, we’re not going allow you to do this.”
Waters wants Trump’s taxes investigated by the finance committee she sits on. She hasn’t given up at all on getting him impeached… in fact, she’s doubling and tripling down on that premise. Make no mistake, Maxine Waters is calling for violent revolution against a sitting president here and the media, Hollywood and the left are complicit in their silence over it.
Regardless of Waters’ call to the faithful to rally in the streets across America against President Trump, the border wall will still be built. But if she gets her way, she may engender civil conflict across the country while that is happening. That used to be called insurrection.
Trump was forced to declare a national emergency so that at long last something would be done to stem the tide of human trafficking, illegal immigration and drug smuggling at the U.S. southern border. He’s now being sued for declaring the national emergency. But something tells me that no matter how many protests and lawsuits are thrown at him, in the end, Trump will build the wall.
